Columbia, MD, August 20, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Debt Shield, an award-winning debt settlement company headquartered in Maryland, settled more client accounts with creditors in June than any other month in the company’s history.
The company's team of professional debt settlement negotiators is responsible for discussing clients’ specific financial situations with their creditors and negotiating debts down to a more manageable amount. Their efforts typically result in agreements between creditors and clients to pay off individual accounts for less than they owe. Negotiations Manager Daryell Mack is proud of his team’s accomplishments.
"Our team handled the largest number of individual debt accounts last month while also negotiating the highest overall debt amount in one month," explained Mack. "They continue to raise the bar and I know our clients are looking forward to more record-breaking results in the near future."
Furthermore, the negotiation department secured more first-time debt settlements for new clients than ever before.
"While all settlements have a positive impact on our clients, it's the first settlement that really helps our clients realize a seemingly insurmountable debt can be resolved with our help," said Mack. He believes his team's hard work, dedication and high level of expertise contributed to their recent achievement.
"As a team, our department is continuously perfecting our strategy," explained Mack. "Negotiators understand specific tactics for helping our clients get the lowest settlements possible, such as the importance of timing negotiations and settlement offers for optimal results."
Mack also credits Debt Shield’s reputation. Creditors are more willing to work with Debt Shield, and more likely to accept lower settlement offers, because Debt Shield is an established debt settlement company that enrolls clients who truly need debt relief.
"Many creditors are familiar with the Debt Shield name and they know we service clients who genuinely need assistance," explained Mack. "If our company did not have such a solid reputation, it would be more challenging to reach settlements with creditors."
Debt settlement is a win-win for both consumers and their creditor; Debt Shield clients get out of debt faster because they can settle each account for less than they owe, and creditors benefit from collecting accounts that may otherwise get discharged in bankruptcy and go unpaid.
